All members are required to attend registration and have their voices checked each fall for placement in the choir. The choir is open to children in grades 3-8 who demonstrate the necessary singing skills. Boys must have unchanged voices. January Registration is held for new members who wish to join mid-year as well as current members who are requested to re-audition by the choir directors. Rehearsals are held each Tuesday throughout the school year from 5:00 to 6:15 p.m. in the L-P Choral Room. Most singers spend several years in this choir developing basic singing skills and musicianship.

Friends and supporters of the youth choir: the choir is searching for a new rehearsal location for next fall/spring. The construction at LP is displacing us.

Do you know of a building or church in LaSalle or Peru that would fit our needs?

-rehearsal space for up to 50 students
-enough space outside for roughly 40 cars to park/pickup.
-available EVERY Tuesday Sept 12-Nov 28 and Jan 23-Apr 24 from 4:30-6:30
-free or very low cost
-bonus points if there is a real piano! (not electric)

We have the potential to use an area school but wanted to explore any and all options that might be available.

Reply or PM with helpful leads!
